Women in Data Science

  • The California Endowment's Center for Healthy Communities 2000 Franklin Street Elmhurst Room, 2nd Floor Oakland, CA 94612 (map)

CULTURxEAT Founder & CEO, Kristina Ashley Williams, will be speaking at the Women in Data Science conference on the topic of Disrupting Toxic Tech and the journey of being a Black woman tech founder.

Women in Data Science (WiDS), Oakland, is part of the global Stanford University’s initiative that features local events around various data science discipline areas. The idea is to coordinate events that exclusively feature female speakers working in the field of data science. Rania Ahmed, Research Associate at Urban Strategies Council, and Symone Jackson, Digital Engagement Manager at Beneficial State Foundation, are coordinating this year's WiDS event in Oakland. It is with enthusiasm that we aim to cover issues around three main themes in the upcoming (WIDS) luncheon:

  • Using data to measure social impact

  • Building creative technology for social justice

  • Disrupting tech through human-centered design and challenges of being a Black female tech founder

  • Data analysis for social good: data for policy and legislative change
